I drink only water and a cup of coffee or two a day with Trim Healthy Mama approved creamer (either heavy whipping cream (S) or almond milk (E), truvia and extract of my choice). Now that it is spring I will be drinking other things like iced tea (unsweetened) or other THM approved drinks (mostly).
I follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan (mostly, but I am at goal weight so I do a lot of Crossover meals, at least I am trying to do more Crossovers).
I exercise four times a week for twenty minutes (I have gotten bad at this, it’s been more like three times for fifteen minutes).
We rarely go out eat, I cook A LOT!! But I enjoy it.
5.4 Breakfast: Trim Healthy Pancakes (E) topped with 0% yogurt, blueberries and THM Syrup. I also added two sausages because THM is working too well and I dropped another five pounds. I need to be adding more Crossover meals. But THM really does work for those that want to loose weight!!
Lunch: Leftover Easy Chicken Enchiladas
Snack: Chocolate Decadence and a Babybel
Dinner: Hubby and had a much needed date night (and a gift card to help with cost). I tried to be good but gave into eating french fries (I did order the sweet potato fries but hubby was willing to switch with me, not that they were bad, I just really wanted the fries and I ate every morsel of my dinner): Smothered chicken, steamed broccoli and fries. Overall not a horrible meal but the portions were bigger then I should have totally consumed. Oh well, no guilt.
No snack, we didn’t finish dinner until after 8:00pm
5.5 Breakfast: Two eggs, hashbrowns, veggies and cheese (Crossover)
Lunch: Leftover tiny tasty tacos
Snack: Berry Treat. I had some Skinny Pop on our way down to Columbus, Ohio for my daughter’s last volleyball tournament..I got hungry.
Dinner: We ate at some restaurant (can’t remember the name) and I ordered Brushetta chicken, it had balsamic vinager, tomatoes and mozzarella, over rice (it was white, which isn’t THM friendly) and some veggies. This was a Crossover but I managed to stay pretty healthy.
Snack: I packed some Trimtastic brownies
5.6 Breakfast: My daughter had her last volleyball tournament three hours from home. We stayed in a hotel that didn’t serve breakfast. I brought along a Oatmeal on the Go from Trim Healthy Table.
Keep in mind that I am beyond goal weight, so I am doing a lot of cheating. If you are not at goal weight and know you would struggle to get back on track after having treats you should find healthy alternatives. I gave in because I knew I wouldn’t fall back into old habits. I LOVE being a trim healthy mama!! But today was not a THM day.
Snack: Got hungry early. There was a market downtown that served these massive donuts that looked really good. I got one, I only ate half…it wasn’t that good, pretty disappointed.
Lunch: I didn’t do too bad with lunch. Got a chicken salad on rye, it was very good and filling.
Snack: Finished the donut.
Dinner: Had to eat in the car, we got Wendy’s. Yes, I could have stayed on plan but I haven’t had a Wendy’s burger in a long time, so I got a burger (and ate the bun) with fries. I also got a Coke. Yeah, totally not good for me. But no worries, tomorrow is a new day.
5.7 Breakfast: Mufflet from THM Cookbook
Lunch: A Fuel Pull Salad from THM Cookbook
Snack: Triple Zero yogurt by Oikos and a Babybel
Dinner: Chicken Florentine over zucchini noodles from TH Table. This was sooo yummy. I finally bought a zoodle maker and made my own zucchini noodles.
5.8 Breakfast: Trim Healthy Pancakes (E) topped with 0% yogurt, strawberries and THM Syrup (yum)
Lunch: Leftover over chicken florentine
Snack: Salted caramel shake, love this one. Recipe from THM Cookbook.
Dinner: Cashew Chicken from THM Cookbook.
5.9 Breakfast: Peach Spice Overnight Oats. This was pretty good, I would make it again, I put some Redi Whip on it and syrup.
Snack: I am a Fine Arts Festival with my students all day today so our eating times are different for me. I ate a Maple Cinnamon Larabar, I have found that one is probably most plan friendly but I only do it when I am on the run.
Lunch: They provided lunch, I was hoping that would have salad but they only had pizza. I had two slices.
Dinner: Had more options so I could stay on plan. I had chicken covered in alfredo sauce and a salad loaded with veggies.
Snack: Brainy Blueberry Muffin from THM Cookbook.
5.10 Breakfast: Bring on da Buttah pancakes and two sausages.
Lunch: It’s teacher appreciation week so they school had a cookout for the teachers. I had a burger (no bun), a few carrots and fruit.
Snack: Salami wrapped around mozzarella cheese stick.
Dinner: Talapia Veracruz from THM Cookbook over quinoa.
Snack: Strawberry Muffin from THM Cookbook.
